Developer Firaxis has confirmed a release date of 11 May 2023 for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the 2022 tactical role-playing superhero game, Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Unfortunately it’s only bad news for Nintendo Switch owners as the studio also revealed that it has cancelled a planned Switch version.
Firaxis recently spoke about the next wave of releases for Marvel’s Midnight Suns, confirming that last-gen console players will be able to experience the game next week. The three previous DLC packs featuring Deadpool, Venom and Morbius, as well as the new Storm DLC, will be available for purchase at launch via the game’s Legendary Edition or the season pass. Once you complete the story missions for all four DLC characters, a final boss fight against a mythical monster will be unlocked.

Firaxis also stomped out hopes for a Nintendo Switch version of Marvel’s Midnight Suns, which was originally planned to launch after the PS4 and Xbox One ports. The studio didn’t give any exact reason behind the cancellation of the Switch version other than saying it’s “no longer planned”, though fans believe that Firaxis simply couldn’t get the game to run optimally on the Switch hardware – a recurring problem as many feel the Switch is already showing its age.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns initially launched on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC back in December 2022 to mostly positive reviews, with many praising Firaxis for its tactical gameplay experience acquired after working on the XCOM franchise. The studio chose to delay the PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch versions in order to further refine them, though the Switch port doesn’t seem to be moving ahead anymore.
In the meantime, Nintendo Switch owners have The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom to look forward to this month as it closes in on its 12 May 2023 release date.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is currently available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC with the PS4 and Xbox One versions arriving on 11 May 2023.
